Nominations for 2021 STAW Honorees are now closed. 2021 honorees will be announced on AAST social media channels throughout the week of STAW.
Say thanks. A handwritten thank-you note is always appreciated. Ask your administration and other key stakeholders to show their thanks, too, by signing your note or writing one of their own.
Post a large corkboard in a visible place with pictures of your team. Write captions below each photo with the employee's name, and describe one of their best qualities. Encourage team members to add their praises to the corkboard throughout the week.
Identify specific job-related skills your employees want to know more about. Invite a special guest with expertise in that area to spend the day at your facility.
It's a classic: Guess the baby picture! Invite all staff members to bring in a picture of themselves as a baby. Create a bulletin board with all of the photos-whoever gets the most right wins a prize!
Encourage giving. Allow your team to pick a cause or organization to support. Encourage your team members to donate to this organization, and as an organization, match these (or a percentage) of these donations.
Hand out awards. Host a mini awards ceremony at your center. Print off appreciation certificates or give out trophies to your team members as a way to let them know their hard work is appreciated and noticed.
